country's leaders past and present. we heard from president obama last night. let's go to the white house now and hear from brianna keilar. this was a personal moment for barack obama who talked about the influence of nelson mandela when he was a young man. >> reporter: that's right, john. it was just huge. president obama was 19 years old when he first got involved with the anti-apartheid movement. the first time he gave what being call a political speech was back in 1981. he was a sophomore at occidental college when he spoke out against apartheid. for president obama, nelson mandela was a personal hero and personal idol who struggled his earliest ambitions. >> i am one of the first who grew inspiration from nelson mandela's life. my first political action, the first thing i ever did that involved an issue of policy or politics was a protest against apartheid. >> reporter: they met in person only briefly in 2005 before obama became president. the two leaders, each standing in history as the first black president of his nation, spoke occasionally by phone. president obama penned the forw
apartheid in south africa to the battle over obama care. >> he was fighting against some great injustice. i would make the argument we have a great injustice going on right now in this country with an ever-increasing size of government that has taken over and is controlling people's lives and obama care is front and center in that. >> ryan, what gives? >> i think we have to add apartheid -- >> f.w. de klerk, such a better person than mitch mcconnell. >> we have to add apartheid to that list of issues you shouldn't compare in modern american politics -- >> right. naziism, slavery, apartheid. >> there are issues that were unique historically and no matter how bad you think things are in american politics right now, comparisons are never going to be apt. >> nelson mandela supported universal health care. i think the comparison, like the pope, i think the comparison is kind of -- >> i would tell you this. i think neither side should be using the man, a dead man, deceased man we are honoring to make cheap political shots. >> amen to that. ana, ryan, neera, you guys continue in the green room. >>

and end up uninsured on january 1st would send obama care back into pr hell. it was a small percent, 5% in this country getting purged off their insurance carriers because of being on plans that were unacceptable to the bottom line foundation of the aca. so if january 1st rolls around and as politico points out that those people exist as uninsured and problematic, is that another pr problem? >> i think you're dealing in large part in semantics there, thomas. because a lot of those people, they did have policies that didn't meet the minimum standards. that's just not a theoretical discussion. there's a reason you have minimum standards. there are people out there who have insurance that's an illusion. they have annual and lifetime caps. there's so many people out there with what i call phony insurance policies and the fact that they're going to lose those policies sooner or later i think is a good thing. because what we're up to here is we are strengthening the health care system in this country. we're strengthening the hospitals that end up eating all of that uninsured care that they e

and on the lower end of the economic spectrum, you aren't. >> as president obama pointed out yesterday a growing disparity between the haves and have-nots here in the country. is that a real threat to the overall economy? >> i think it absolutely is. i think it is the key economic problem of our time, the growing income gap and stagnant wages. our economy is made up of 70% consumer spending. if you have the majority of americans not getting raises, not feeling confident you cannot have a more robust recovery longer term. we've got to get unemployment down and wages up. >> you're talking to the smartest analysts in new york, what is their prediction going into 2014? what can we an tess pate? >> well, i think that people are expecting the federal reserve to start tapering back on its asset buying. they've been pouring $85 billion a month into the economy, one of the reasons stocks remain high. i did a cover story in "time "s on carl icahn who believes that the market is going to break at some point, in part because of things we've been talking about, higher inequality, low wages and generally low

for creating a pathway to freedom for all of us, a message that is being heard here and in other countries as well. michaela? >> very moving indeed. erin mclaughlin, thank you for that. >> the tributes are pouring in from all over the world this morning. president obama had some very, very poignant words to honor the late president of south africa. he actually invoked words that were used at president lincoln's funeral. >> he no longer belongs to us. he belongs to the ages. through his fierce dignity and bending will to sacrifice his own freedom for the freedom of others, madiba transformed south africa and moved all of us. his journey from a prisoner to a president embodied the presence that human beings and countries can change for the better. his commitment to transfer pour and reconcile for those who jailed him set an example that all humanity took inspire to whether the lives of nations or our own personal lives. the fact did he it all with grace, with humor, and the ability to acknowledge his own imperfections only makes the man that much more remarkable. >> well said. the president
to the apartheid regime was divided in this country and many other nations. you look at say the early origins of investment campaign where a young barack obama as a student was involved, many other young idealists and international humanitarians but it was not seen at the time as a way to actually break the regime. it was seen as first a symbolic step and then got traction. the international program against the apartheid regime was a huge factor. walk us through that. >> that's right. it took a long time to gain motion. it seemed idealistic at the beginning, like many younger obama, i remember taking part myself in the protest on college campuses. and but it gained speed, just because so many people caught onto it. in a sense it was the last really coherent global social protest movement. and of course, it was all rallying around mandela. i can remember very well from those days, free mandela was the great rallying cry as sit-ins and protests were formed on these campuses. so it really in the end had the impact that it was intended to have, not something you can see about most protests. >> in
as it exists in this country, as anybody knows, stinks. if you can't be better than that with obama care, you're going to get out thereof anyway. >> but if everything is a negative cycle, all politics is simply about attacking the other guy and not figuring out a way to -- >> what breaks the cycle? >> better ideas. you and i will be running, i'll be doing this game, you'll have have an idea that resonates with the voters. you're going to win. >> in the miamiry. >> maybe not in the primary in certain places. >> one more election will break the fever of partisanship and get things done when you give my team unified control. >> we can fix it all if we have everything. >> we have a shutdown looming, folks. let's not forget that. we have a deadline, otherwise we're going through all of this again. >> bah humbug, john. >> the voters usually end up coming to the right place. that's what usually saves it. it's usually the people that wind up turning these things around. you'll see it. >> thanks. great to see you. >> john avlon. we should get a picture of john's head on the grinch. >> i'm the grinch?
, in fact, seven out of ten doctors, ard coulding to a new report out this morning, are boycotting the obama care exchange, because, for instance, for getting a tonsilectomy. $500 to $700 they would normally be able to charge for a tonsilectomy in other parts of the country. in california, $160. one of the doctors, he's the president of the california medical association, he sums it up perfectly. we need recognition we're doing a service to the community, but we can't do it for free. he says, we can't do it at a loss. no other business would do that. >> $160? you can't get a bone and rib-eye and a bottle of beer at the pub for that. that's an outrage. >> and return visits, also, $76. generally in most states across the country. in california, it's about $24. take an listen to the doctor in the state of california. a very loose state, mind you, who's fed up with this. >> we train to take care of patients. that's the bottom line here, but in order to take care of patients you have to be able to keep your doors open, pay your overhead, pay your staff. the reality is $24 doesn't cover the cost o
